Itâ€™s so encouraging to see that some people are getting up off the couch, and doing something active. I must admit that a lot of people are now taking a keen interest in getting back in shape and stay healthy. While there are others who just keep making-up excuses and more excuses.
Two common barriers for people who want to exercise and get in shape are a lack of time and money needed for fitness.
Who has the time to go to the gym, or buy expensive equipment, or take long bike rides?
Well, if those are the things stopping you, youâ€™re in luck.
It takes no equipment to get a great workout and get in shape, and with one or two pieces of simple equipment, you can turn that great workout into a fantastic one, you magnificent beast, you.
And with little or no equipment required for a fantastic workout, you can do it at home, or wherever you are. Even if youâ€™re in solitary confinement â€“ one lesson we can learn from prisoners.
Itâ€™s hard not to find time for this type of workout â€” you can do it while watching TV, for goodness sake!
Using just your bodyweight, you can do a large number of challenging exercises. I suggest starting with bodyweight exercises along with some cardio (i.e. walking, jogging, swimming, etc) and then slowly transitioning to a combination of bodyweight and weight training to get a good balance.
And even if youâ€™re doing a complete weight training program, you can always use bodyweight exercises anytime you canâ€™t make it to the gym.
Iâ€™m curious to hear your excuse(s) â€“ why youâ€™re still falling asleep in front the TV when you could be doing something active. Letâ€™s hear â€˜em in the comments.
